The Fly is one of the greatest body horrors of all time. I’ll never forget the first time I watched it and the feeling of disgust and awe that overcame me. It could be my personal favourite David Cronenberg film, but Videodrome is probably a close second.
Howard Shore’s score is a perfect, powerful accompaniment to Cronenberg’s deliciously disturbing visuals and terrifying story, so we’re ecstatic to discover that the OST will be coming to vinyl. Courtesy of Varese Sarabande, the vinyl will be released on 20th January to celebrate The Fly’s 20th anniversary. It will be limited to only 2000 copies, so you’ll have to get in there fast. Sadly, the vinyl is only shipping to the US, so those of us in the UK will miss out. Boo!
To remind you how incredible Shore’s score is, listen to the music that accompanies the main title sequence below.
